F/O Albert Medcalf’s Spitfire Mk.I (L1016 DW-Q), 610 Squadron 610 squadron began operations over the Belgium area in early May 1940, and by the 27th were supporting the Dunkirk evacuations when they encountered an He-111. While the the bomber was dispatched, 610 squadron in turn found themselves in combat with some 40 Me-110’s. Three of the Messerschmitt’s were accounted for, however 610 lost two of their own- Sergeant William Medway and FO Albert Medcalf. By the time operation Dynamo was concluded, half of the original members of 610 squadron would killed, missing or wounded. This is the old-tool Revell kit that was originally released in 1969. To improve some of the details, a donor Hasegawa kit was raided for: cockpit carburator scoop propeller canopy and windshield landing gear doors Aftermarket used includes: Quickboost exhaust Brassin landing gear CMK/Quickboost seat True Details wheels EZ-Line for antenna wires Eagle Edition decals Scratchbuilding and corrections were needed to address many of the kits shortcomings: landing gear bays gun ports radiator and oil cooler minor interior and exterior details fit issues at cowl panels and control surfaces Build time was about 2 months. Colors are generally Vallejo (which went on very nicely) along with some Tamiya and Model Master enamel. Mig Dark wash, oils, pigments and pastels were also used during the finishing process. The work-in-progress build thread can be found here. I enjoyed the build and am pleased with the outcome. Thanks to all those that followed along and for the helpful input and encouragement. I hope you enjoy and Happy New Year! Kai
